Objective: I can change decimals to fractions.
Fractions and decimals are closely related, and can be converted from one form to the other.
To convert a decimal to a fraction, follow these steps:
Step 1: Write down the decimal divided by 1, such as 0.75/1.
Step 2: Multiply both the numerator and denominator by a power of 10 to get a whole number in the numerator. In this case, you would multiply by 100, which gives you 75/100.
Step 3: Simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor (GCF). In this case, the GCF of 75 and 100 is 25, so you can simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 25, which gives you 3/4.
Therefore, the decimal 0.75 can be converted to the fraction 3/4.
